In this study, we saw that God redeems, restores and empowers us. I will end my study on Joel with this post focusing on Joel 3:10b:
…let the weak say, “I am a warrior.”(ESV)
“Let the weak say, I am strong” Sound familar? The ESV uses the word warrior, other versions might say mighty or valiant. When you are feeling weak, remember that He makes you strong.
When looking at the whole verse, it may be literally referring to physical strength as it refers to beating plows in the passage, however, we cannot ignore the fact that it has a spiritual meaning much like the whole book of Joel. John Wesley comments this verse suggests ” I am strong – Put on strength and valour; let none be absent from this war.”
Spiritually, we are fighting a battle. And you are a warrior in it. Look again at Joel 2. His people will never be put to shame; He has removed your guilt, disgrace and unworthiness. He calls you a worthy warrior and you are a fighting a worthy battle.
